Be Girl employs the Buy-One-Give-One model and categorizes products into various ‘funds’ through an ‘EmpowerBank‘. Products are allocated to different funding sources, and then distributed accordingly. For example, the Be Safe Fund helps distribute Be Girl menstrual products to women during times of upheaval (such as political conflicts or natural disasters), while the Sustainable Fund provides products to vetted, non-profit organizations with an interest in improving female health and empowerment. Be Girl has determined that the Be Girl PeriodPantyTM has a distribution advantage over traditional sanitary napkins. The shape of a panty helps reduce the stigma and increases the willingness to distribute (males prefer to sell panties over pads) and willingness to purchase (the family prioritize the purchase of a panty over a pad).Interview with representative
